Destroy the Public Space

Nancy Pelosi on what Republicans want:
This is about destoying. Isn't about reducing the deficit. It's about destroying the public space. It's about destroying public in... federal involvement in education. It’s about clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety. You name it, they’re there to diminish it. Destroy it.

The voting in the House of Representatives went as follows:

Voting yes were 95 Democrats and 174 Republicans.

Voting no were 95 Democrats and 66 Republicans.

Why isn't Rep. Pelosi accusing the half of the House Democrats that voted against the bill with the same destructive outcomes? No matter what the motive of the Democrats who did not vote for it, the result would have been the same. So are the 95 Democrats that did not vote for the bill against clean water, food safety and public safety? Can they be said to have voted in favor of default?
